The Eyeglass Recycling trip to Roanoke is coming up in April. If the situation in storing glasses and shipping them to be used is not improved we may start sending our glasses somewhere else or find other ways to use the glasses. Each Lion is encouraged to consider taking at least one trip to assist with the recycling.
